Gut Healthy Comfort Food for When You’re Feeling Lazy
You’re tired. Nothing in your cupboards is appealing. The fridge looks boring as could be. We’ve all been there. Luckily, this grilled cheese with homemade tomato soup takes very few ingredients, and a grand total of 25 minutes to prepare. Forget about stewing or pureeing tomatoes; there’s almost no work involved in this recipe thanks to Fody’s Tomato & Basil Sauce.
If you’re still searching your cupboards, there’s one item you almost certainly have: pasta. This copycat “Hamburger Helper” recipe is totally plant-based and takes under 20 minutes to cook, and this creamy penne with spinach and mushrooms will give you restaurant vibes without restaurant effort. No pasta? No problem; this super cheesy chicken and rice skillet is sure to hit the spot!
Gut Healthy Comfort Food: Mild Effort Edition
The urge for comfort food can strike when we’re bored, lonely or stressed. One of the key things that drives us to comfort food is its social component: most comfort foods are classic foods we’re used to consuming with other people.
If you’re looking for traditional (but gut friendly!) comfort food, what could be more classic than chicken nuggets? These homemade gluten-free chicken nuggets can be prepared with a few basic kitchen staples. For a fresh twist to satisfy, make your own zesty dip thanks to Fody’s ketchup! If you’re looking for a more sophisticated (and slightly sweet) variation on chicken nuggets, try these coconut chicken strips!
The only more classic meal than chicken nuggets is a pizza. There are endless bloat-free, gut friendly pizza recipe variations you can make yourself at home. Pull out that container of feta and make a Greek pizza, go healthy with a mushroom-kale version, or go simple-as-can-be with a margherita.
Gut Healthy Comfort Food to Lean Into
Now, this pizza soup comes with one caveat: it takes almost no time to prepare, but a bit more time to cook. Thanks to Fody’s Vegan Bolognese, most of the work is already done; just throw it in the crock pot and go. It’s an easy dinner for a lazy day at home, when you have nothing but time. Need more easy one-pot meals? Try this vegetarian chili featuring Fody’s Garlic-Infused Olive Oil, or this rustic vegetable soup starring Fody’s Tomato & Basil Sauce and Everyday Seasoning.
If you’re in the mood to prepare yourself something really delicious, this sesame ginger chicken with coconut rice takes only 30 minutes and a bit of prep work, and it’s better than takeout! And speaking of takeout, this Taco-Bell CrunchWrap Supreme copycat is surprisingly easy, and comes with a satisfying cheese pull and a spicy bite thanks to Fody’s Medium Salsa.
If you’re preparing some comfort food to share, these chicken parm sliders are a perfect crowd-pleaser for a family night or an evening in. They’re surprisingly simple, and rely on marinara sauce for their rich flavor. Finally, if you’re up for a bit of a challenge, why not opt for the ultimate comfort food: homemade gnocchi?
